'Art condenses the experience we all have as human beings, and, by forming it, makes it significant. We all have an in-built need for harmony and the structures that create harmony. Basically, art is an affirmation of life.' Trevor Bell
I guess you could say I was born an artist! My intrinsic artistic abilities appeared around the age of 1½ years old when I began scribbling colorful imagery on my bedroom walls, later carving designs and cryptic messages on my parent’s fine furniture. Over the years, I have continued my artistic endeavors working as a monotype printmaker, painter, mixed media artist, and jewelry maker.
Today I had a chance to get in the studio again! Last Saturday and this one...heavenly! I multi-tasked today, worked on several cold wax pieces, and then dabbled with the encaustic monotype process; a process in which I hope to learn more about. It is fascinating! Here are today's results.
Fenced Garden(C) 12" diameter
(Fenced Garden needs a little work...check back to see it develop!)
Rhythm of Spring (C) 6" x 10"
I was really pleased with 'Rhythm' this is more in line with my working style in the medium....be looking for more!
